Overall Rating

Niagara University is centered around Vincentian values as it applies to students in both an academic and social environment. Personally, I most enjoy the community aspect of Niagara University. Everyone is courteous and well involved in the events held around campus. As a prospective student, don't be afraid to go outside your comfort zone because there is so much offered at Niagara University and you don't want to miss out. My most memorable experience so far was the New Student Orientation where all the incoming Freshman competed in an olympic-type event with relays, dodgeball, and many other games.
